Obituary of Gertrude Sinko

Gertrude Sinko, age 87, devoted wife of  Frank Sinko, Jr., of Fairfield, passed away on November 18, 2019.

In addition to Frank, her beloved husband of 69 years, Gertrude will be lovingly remembered by her son, John Sinko, of Fairfield; her daughter, Regina Kardos, her husband Bryan, and their son Kevin, of Norwalk. In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her son, Frank Sinko, III, and siblings, Hilda Wuthrich and Franz Kickenweiz, Jr.

Born in Austria to the late Franz and Regina Kohler Kickenweiz, Gertrude resided in Australia for seven years before settling in Fairfield with her husband over 50 years ago. A homemaker, she enjoyed knitting, sewing, reading, gardening, and finding angel and ladybug collectibles. Above though, she loved spending time with family and dear friends, and was especially thankful for being an Oma to her cherished grandson, Kevin.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday from 3-7 PM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home 1209 Post Road, in Fairfield Center. Her Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Friday at 1 PM in Saint Anthony Church, Fairfield, with her interment to follow in Oak Lawn Cemetery. Her complete obituary is forthcoming.
